Mrs. Munoz Physical Education Class


My name is Mrs. Munoz-Araujo, I am your child's Physical Education/Health teacher this year. My goal is to improve your child's physical fitness through warm up exercises, strength exercises and cardiovascular fitness activities. We will work on learning and applying health related concepts, game rules, and strategies as well as cooperative learning and sportsmanship that will foster participation in physical fitness activities throughout life.

This is my ninth year teaching at Union Avenue Middle School.  I previously worked as an Exercise Specialist in corporate fitness centers in the NY/NJ area.  I am a certified personal trainer (ACE- American Council on Exercise) and a certified spin instructor.  I graduated from William Paterson University in 2003 with a degree in Physical Education.  I currently hold a Master's Degree in School Counseling from New Jersey City University.  

 

Outside of school I like to watch my favorite sports teams, Mets, NY Giants, Duke, and Knicks.  I like to run 5k races, read, exercise with my 2 dogs, spend time with my children and relax at home.
